To the Family
One night I dreamed I was walking along the beach with the Lord.
Many scenes from my life flashed across the sky.
In each scene I noticed footprints in the sand.
Sometimes there were two sets of footprints, other times there was one only.
This bothered me because I noticed that during the low periods of my life, when I was suffering from anguish, sorrow or defeat,
I could see only one set of footprints, so I said to the Lord,
“You promised me Lord, that if I followed you, you would walk with me always.
But I have noticed that during the most trying periods of my lifethere has only been one set of footprints in the sand.
Why, when I needed you most, have you not been there for me?”
The Lord replied, “The years when you have seen only one set of footprints, my child, is when I carried you.”

Happy Birthday Josh! Man, I don't even know where to start budd!
When you started getting treatment and we had bearly started talking, all I can remember was how positive you were.... I'll never forget our conversations on the app KIK, and how open and honest and positive you were throughout everything. Your courage and bravery has not only stuck on me, but you have inspired me in more ways then ever! I'll never forget everything you told me and the advice I gave you too. You not only taught me to be brave, to have courage, but to be positive in every sintuation weather it be bad or good! You're so missed bro, not only by myself, but your whole family and friends too!
I pray everyday for your amazing family, especially your Dad, because I know he struggles so much. I hope you continue to give him signs that your ok and happy in Heaven with our Lord and Savior. I know God must be throwing you the biggest party heaven has ever seen!
I miss you budd... we all miss you!
I miss our conversations.... I miss your positive attitude, and I miss seeing your name pop up whenever I got a new message from you.
We will see each other one day, and I can't wait to meet in Heaven!
Hope you have an awesome and amazing birthday in Heaven! We love you Josh!
Happy Birthday Kidd!!!

Time has passed, and as you return to your daily routine, may you get stronger each day by telling new family and friends about the wonderful life and memories of Josh. And may you continue to be comforted by the one who will "Fill you with all joy and peace by your trusting in him, so that you may abound in hope." (Romans 15:13)

My deepest condolences to the Family of Josh. May God give you strength. Psalm 37:39. Thank you for sharing your story. Josh had such a nice smile even through hard times. May you find comfort in knowing that God will soon remove all pain, sickness and death. Revelation 21:3,4. Our loving Creator longs to bring back our dear loved ones in sound health to be with us again but in beautiful conditions on earth that we can enjoy together. Job 14:14,15. ~Sincerely

I miss you so much Josh. When I look at your pictures I remember the good times that we had in elementary and when we were in math class 38th Ms.Spalding. You made me laugh,you were one of my best friends. Why did God have to take you so soon. You still had a long life to live. But your in a better place now. I miss you Josh.

He Will Call ( Job 14:13-15 )
Life, like a mist, appears for just a day, Then disappears tomorrow. All that we are can quickly fade away, Replaced with tears and sorrow. If a man should die, can he live again? Hear the promise God has made:
He will call; The dead will answer. They shall live at his command. For he will have a longing For the work of his own hand. So have faith, and do not wonder, For our God can make us stand. And we shall live forever, As the work of his own hand.
Friends of our God, though they may pass away, Will never be forsaken. All those asleep who in God’s mem’ry stay, From death he will awaken. Then we’ll come to see all that life can be: Paradise eternally.
(See also John 6:40; 11:11, 43; Jas. 4:14 .)

I made this page in hopes to continue to keep Josh's memory alive!
I hope everyone who views Josh's page will be inspired of how courageous he was, and how he always had a smile on his face, even through the toughest times.
I dedicate this Memorial Page in memory of Josh, but i'd also like to dedicate this memorial page to the parents of Josh Villarreal and hope you know that you guys raised a great son! This is a great way to connect with loved ones just like yourself who's gone through similar losses. I hope this page not only brings healing, but comfort as well!
Love you guys!
Never will we forget Josh!
